Did you feel like your abs were super weak after a c-section?

I still feel so weak and sore 6 months post-partum.
I tried to do some pilates yesterday and it was awful!!!!

  • i would talk to your doctor because i had 3 c-sections and i never felt that way the only problem i had was with my last one and i ended up with an infection but it only took me 2 months to have it cleared up ... but i do think you should be feeling like that so i would make a list of the things you do during the day and your questions for your doctor and see what he says

  • My c- sec hurts sometimes even 8 years after I got it done. So it won't go on the upside sorry...

  • My baby (third section) just turned one. I feel like my abs are much weaker than they used to be, but I haven't felt pain in a long time.

  • I think my abs are weaker now than they were, but I just had my c-section not even 6 weeks ago, but I'm not really in any pain any more.
